By Kidega Livingstone


Central Equatoria State Women Union has called for equal treatment and the protection of children during festive occasions.

Recognizing the significance of celebrations in fostering unity and joy, the Women’s Union emphasizes the need for parents, guardians, and society as a whole to ensure the well-being and fair treatment of children, who represent the future of the nation.

Government institutions, private sector organizations, universities, and schools were closed to observe this day.

In an interview, Josephine Nadia Michael, Deputy President of the Women Union of Central Equatoria State, urged parents and guardians to ensure the well-being of their children during the celebrations, as children are the future of the country.

“We are advising our men also to take care of their women and provide the necessary needs for them so that they be able to celebrate the days peacefully,” she added.

Nadia expressed the Union’s congratulations to the presidency and the people of South Sudan, particularly the women across the country, on the occasion of Eid al-Fitr.

She highlighted the significance of women in both public offices and private sectors actively participating in grassroots celebrations to foster unity and share important experiences.

In a previous statement, Veronica Joan, Speaker for the Women’s Union of Central Equatoria State, highlighted the lack of awareness among women at the village level regarding their rights in society.

Joan believed that such celebrations and sharing would play a vital role in empowering women with knowledge about their rights, enabling them to advocate for their needs and aspirations.

Eid al-Fitr is a religious holiday that marks the end of Ramadan, a month of fasting observed by Muslims worldwide.
